Review Haute-Fidelité N°245 – 2020 – French

Product Sheet – French

Thanks to its longstanding work on loudspeakers, Supravox engineers design most of their loudspeakers without using a crossover, which is the best solution to obtain an exceptional and natural sound reproduction.

In response to demands for compact products, we created this bookshelf speaker.

In order to meet the expectations of the more demanding music lovers it benefits of the full expertise of our technical director Cyrille PINTON :

  • design as complete system : drivers + acoustical load + filter
  • acoustic proportion of the internal volume 
  • internal damping
  • box rigidity through precise reinforcement
  • vent sizing
  • design of a pair of fully new dedicated drivers
  • custom filter
  • passive components choice
  • acoustic design of the front grid, to cancel its influence on the frequency response

The 165 GMF 2 uses the Supravox raw paper diaphragm combined with a brand new ferrite motor, including two demodulating rings, carefully designed in terms of symmetry and linearity of BL(x) and Le(x).
We match a rubber surround to this cone, insuring a large and linear excursion, needed for the extended bass range.
This loudspeaker retains the qualities of tonal balance, transparency and liveliness, signatures of the Supravox loudspeakers, with the addition of an increased dynamic range due to its large travel of +/- 4.5 mm.

This bass-midrange is associated with a new 28 mm silk dome tweeter, with a copper sleeved pole.

This loudspeaker benefits from a proprietary almost-optimal Cyrille PINTON crossover, dedicated to this “couple” of drivers.  

This acoustic system needs a breaking-in during a dozen of albums to deliver its full potential.
